disciplinary procedure

There are a number of particular rules which lawyers must follow: these rules are laid down by the Flemish Bar Association or lawyers’ own Bars. The legal profession has its own procedure to sanction any vialotion of the deontological rules: we call these the ‘disciplinary procedures’ and they were overhauled in 2006.

In the first instance, the President of the Bar to which a lawyer belongs has the power to resolve disputes between lawyers and their clients.
